    "To whom much is given, much is required," he said.

    When I first read that I was thinking how true "To whom ever win the jackpot, buying many tickets is required".

     * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

      I worked with Sergio Martini who won 10.3 million dollars on January 6, 1996 playing Powerball. He didn't give any money to charity. Ten of his sanitation co-workers, myself included would give him one dollar to buy each of us a Powerball ticket because he lived in Brewster, New York which is near Connecticut and we didn't. He used to give us our tickets one or two days after the drawing, and no one ever complained to him about it. The day he one, one of the guys didn't get a ticket. Very suspicious if you ask me. After he won he talked to a lawyer. He kept working for a year and a half in order to get a fifteen year pension. He took the 10.3 million over twenty years. The annuity. He bought a $ 750,000.00 home in Brewster, rented out his old home, bought a gas station and put his two sons to work there. He use to look for Marlboro miles in the garbage and continued to do so even after becoming a millionaire.I guess old habits die hard. And when his mother died he still asked everyone for five bucks. We still continued to play the Powerball lottery with him but get this, now he gave us our tickets a day or two before the drawing! Like he should have been doing all along. He told us that he used to get letters from people from all over the world begging him for money. I guess they didn't know that he was such a cheapskate. And he continued to play the lottery, only now he bought a plié of tickets. He used to gamble on everything. He used to drive his brother's taxi cab on weekends to make extra gambling money. They were about to take his house away and then he won the lottery.

          LottoBux, I think he/she was responding to the comment above his/hers --from member RJOh.  He was stating how apparently 'much was expected' from this lottery jackpot winner; yet little was received from him. It was an interesting 'live experience' response to the quote in this article.  Noting that even none sharers have won lottery jackpots.

            Precisely. Thank you. You took the words right out of my mouth and said it so eloquently. That guy Martini was a cheap skate. Pure and simple. Big time. Getting him to financially help all of the starving children of the world would be like trying to get blood from a stone. Martini used to bring his household garbage to the sanitation garage & throw it in the back of a garbage truck, because where he lived in Brewster New York  they would charge you twenty-five dollars to pick up your garbage. When he was working he used to look through the big black garbage bags for Marlboro miles. And after he won the Powerball lottery, he would also buy them from homeless people. He was a real piece of work.
